We stopped by because we were in the area and figured it would be a good opportunity to take pictures. We still took pictures, but I had a very disappointed friend who uttered the sentence, "This can't be it." It is much smaller than what we had in mind, which is our own fault of course. However, I would not... More

Nice little park with a good theme for popping "the question" and taking pictures! She said yes so of course I'd give this place 5 stars! Not too far of the path of things to see. We had a nice time in Philly!

Not a lot to do here during the winter, but the "Love" sign is a great photo spot. The sign was smaller than we had anticipated, but we had no other issues here.

If you are ever in the city, this is a great place for a picture. There is a parking garage right below the park. Afterwards, take a walk to the Liberty Bell. However, take the Philadelphia Phlash Transit Loop bus back to get dropped off right in front of Love Park.

This place is a toliet. All the homeless use it as a restroom, the skaters have torn the steps all up, and then there are the rats. The sign is small and not worth your time. I'm embarrassed that tourists come to this city and see this, I'm downright disgusted with how the city keeps it.

My Husband and I were strolling around Philadelphia streets on a Saturday Evening. We had heard so much about this park, and were not disappointed. The night was chilly, so there were hardly 7-8 folks around the park. It was a beautiful place. The art was much smaller than what we could see on photographs. A passerby offered to click... More

Glad we stopped here. We got the perfect picture. It is really pretty with the water fountain behind it.

Glad we stopped here. The cool statue with the water fountain behind it seemed to be a popular attraction, several homeless people hanging around anxious to snap a pic for tourists for a small fee. :)

The love park is cute and fun to take pictures at, and when the weather is nice it's fun to walk around and be touristy.

Beautiful, fun event for Christmas shopping. There was a choir singing and lots of vendors selling anything you can think of! It's a short walk to the Comcast Center to see the light show.
